Certainly is Ken, surprised someone didn't get it sooner, she has been in the news quite a lot over the past week.

From Wikipedia.

Margrethe II (Danish: [mket]; Margrethe Alexandrine Ŝórhildur Ingrid, born 16 April 1940) is Queen of Denmark. Having reigned for over 51 years, she is the world's only queen regnant, the longest-reigning current European monarch, and the longest-serving incumbent female head of state. During her annual New Year's Eve address on 31 December 2023, Margrethe announced that she will abdicate in favour of her son, Crown Prince Frederik, on 14 January 2024, the 52nd anniversary of her accession.[2]

And of course our own Mary will become queen.

"In less than a week, Tasmania's own Mary Donaldson will become Queen of Denmark. The Australian princess will ascend to the throne on January 14 alongside her husband Crown Prince Frederik after the shock abdication of her mother-in-law Queen Margrethe."

You got it Graham. Who do you have for us ?

MALCOLM YOUNG

Far removed from the loud, sweaty stages and stadiums of his greatest performances, AC/DC guitarist and songwriter Malcolm Young was farewelled with hymns in a house of God.

The 64-year-old died earlier this month after suffering dementia and a period of ill health over several years.

Family including younger brother Angus Young and some of the biggest names in Australian rock such as Jimmy Barnes, Angry Anderson and promoter Michael Chugg were at Tuesday's service at St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney.

His beloved Gretsch guitar nicknamed "The Beast" rested on top of his coffin during the service, and many fans also attended to pay tribute.

After the service, Angus carried the guitar out to the hearse as his brother's coffin was loaded inside.

Young was remembered as both a legendary guitarist, and humble friend.

Malcolm Young was born on 6 January 1953 in Glasgow, Scotland, UK. He was a composer and actor, known for School of Rock (2003), Last Action Hero (1993) and Maximum Overdrive (1986). He was previously married to Linda. imdb.com

Thought it may be a bit of a challenge Ken.

She was a well known American tennis player in the 50's, I imagine younger Nomads would have never heard of her.smile

 Hi Ken, you may like to post a photo? This is not a part of the forum I regularly visit, but Santa makes some great contributions in other areas, so when I spotted his name, in BIG letters, I decided to read his post. 

If Ken chooses not to supply a picture perhaps someone else can help? First in , first served! Cheers

Afternoon Ken.

Have researched presidents who saw service in WW2.

The photo is not Eisenhower, nor is it JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford or Reagan, that only leaves George Bush???

Obviously not Trump, he was a draft dodger.biggrin
